Friday Short Cuts

Notable quotables from Chris Wallace, Buck Sexton, Antony Blinken, Kamala Harris, and more.

Food for Thought

“Part of making wise political and economic decisions is the ability to draw conclusions from history and from knowledge about human behavior. But ideology, indoctrination and cults of personality often obstruct rational decision-making.” —Laura Hollis

“I don’t know that I’ve ever seen such a disconnect between what a party structure is saying and what the mood seems to be among voters. You keep hearing this sense of, well, Trump’s going to be a real hindrance for Republicans, abortion is a very strong issue now with the overturning of Roe for Democrats. But the fact is, when you ask the voters in poll after poll, the most recent poll, two-thirds of Democrats say that they would prefer to see somebody else as the Democrat nominee.” —Chris Wallace

More Equal Than Others

“To me, equality is not electing Joni Ernst. Like, that’s not helping.” —Representative Katie Porter on why Republican women don’t count toward achieving equality


“With the massive influx of illegals from Venezuela, we see people fleeing a country devastated by socialism who will now be championed primarily by American politicians who are proponents of socialism.” —Buck Sexton


“Let me make one thing very clear: Transphobia, homophobia, and biphobia have no place in this country. We strongly condemn this hate and its manifestations, and we stand united in support of 2SLGBTQI+ Canadians across the country — you are valid and you are valued.” —Justin Trudeau


“From day one for our sanctions, this has always been exempt, being able to use money, including by Iran, for humanitarian purposes, it has always been exempt from our sanctions. They’ve actually been entitled to use the money all along, but for practical, technical reasons, they weren’t able to.” —Secretary of State Antony Blinken defending Joe Biden’s Iran hostage deal


“I am always glad when Americans are released from captivity. However, this agreement will entice rogue regimes, like Iran, to take even more Americans hostage. The ayatollah and his henchmen are terrorists and truly represent a terrorist state.” —Senator Lindsey Graham

The BIG Lie

“I think it’s important to pay attention to the fact that prices need to come down in a number of areas, but we have been lowering the cost of living for so many people.” —Kamala Harris

“[Republicans] want to divide this country and make our government appear like it’s broken because that is when their broken political party thrives.” —Representative Jerry Nadler

Immigration Crisis

“If you’re going to leave your country, go somewhere else.” —New York Governor Kathy Hochul
